    " Another fun adventure with Mrs. Pollifax. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 2/18/2014

    " Yet another enjoyable Mrs. Pollifax read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shayne hudson | 2/16/2014

    " The Mrs. Pollifax books are so incredibly good. You won't know what hit you. They are so enjoyable. Who would have thought that a dottering old grandma would be a secret agent with mad karate skills? Not I. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie | 2/11/2014

    " A fun mystery that takes place in China. Mrs. Pollifax is a Garden Club attending elderly lady/ CIA agent.I will read another of these mysteries. I liked it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 TheIron Paw | 1/26/2014

    " A nice light spy novel similar to Agatha Christie and her Miss Marple character. Decent escape/vacation read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandra Strange | 1/21/2014

    " Mrs. Virgil (Emily) Pollifax of New Brunswick, New Jersey, was a widow. Her children grown, tired of attending her Garden Club meetings, she wanted to do something different, but something that would allow her to serve. So, naturally, she became a CIA agent. This series is as delightful as this character sounds. Full of adventure, suspense, fun, even a bit of romance, and warm heartedness, the books are light and entertaining, and almost unfailingly warm and fuzzy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shauna | 1/14/2014

    " This 6th book in the series continues to charm and delight. I loved getting a feel for China in its post-Mao years. And I love watching the other characters discover the charms of our Mrs. Pollifax. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 1/13/2014

    " Mrs. Pollifax on the China Station by Dorothy Gilman (1985) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiffiny | 1/13/2014

    " This was hard to put down, though a little let down at the end. Climax ended very quickly, like it dropped off a cliff. Weird. But otherwise I really enjoyed it a lot. One of my favorites in the series so far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 1/2/2014

    " This was not the fast hitting pace of the other Mrs. Pollifax novels but it was engaing. I was not impressed by China. There was nothing in this book that made me want to travel there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristi | 12/23/2013

    " This is another classic Emily Pollifax. Another fun adventure with lots of twists and turns. I love to see how Mrs. Pollifax handles things and see her sweet no nonsense personality. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally | 12/17/2013

    " Mrs. Pollifax is involved with the CIA in China. A fast paced and entertaining read if you keep in mind that the time period is during the Cold War. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maggie | 12/5/2013

    " I liked this one, especially just having been in China - but I thought it ended sort of abruptly (and improbably). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate | 12/2/2013

    " The franchise is losing its appeal. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 10/3/2013

    " I like this series because it is light reading but still a "who done it". Mrs. Pollifax reminds me of "Miss Marple", American style. Mrs. Pollifax has a lot more zip. Hope eternal for the young at heart. Could not wait to see what she would get into (and out of) next. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 9/20/2013

    " Love the ending !!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kyrie | 8/10/2013

    " Mrs. Pollifax goes to China as a tourist (back in the days when Americans couldn't tour very easily) to safeguard something for the US Gov't. She sees huge chunks of China and Mongolia and manages to defy the Chinese governtment and possibly earn their respect as well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charlene | 2/28/2013

    " Sometimes the older books are just as good as the newer ones with possibly better story plot.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 J | 5/9/2012

    " Mrs. Polifax is definitely not what one expects among the ranks of spies and such. Her adventures are fun to read and enjoy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ayelet | 3/28/2012

    " Another good one. It keeps you guessing about who is the spy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maura | 3/28/2012

    " This is turning into a reliable standby series for me as well. Mrs. Pollifax is just shy of perfect, thank goodness -- if she was any more capable, you'd start to hate her and that would ruin all the fun. also neat to read about travel in China when it wasn't quite so easy as when i went there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 2/14/2012

    " Another Great Mrs. Pollifax adventure! I always enjoy these books! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 8/19/2011

    " The Mrs. Pollifax books are very fun light reads, but they're even more fun to listen to. Hearing it read so well really adds a lot to enjoying the story. "

    " These books are just fun and quick to read. Great summer entertainment. "
